1-day wildlife tour in Khao Yai (Group tour)
(We currently don't offer this package until further notice)
This 1-day group tour is both wildlife and scenic oriented. You will join other tourists to visit some of popular destinations of Khao Yai National Park.
Minimum 4 people will be required to start a tour. Unlike the other tour operators in the area offering much larger groups, our groups are limited in size, not exceeding 6 people. We believe that a smaller group size is more optimal for wildlife watching.
A 1-day group tour in Khao Yai includes hiking, safari drives and a visit to a waterfall. A mix of wildlife watching and enjoying scenery.
Following itinerary is an example of a typical day. The guide might occasionally take the freedom to decide for small changes based on better chances for wildlife watching or depending on (in)accessibility of certain attractions.
Typically, the daytrip starts with a drive looking for wildlife like gibbons, hornbills, macaques and other animals along the road. Afterwards we head to a trail to set out on a jungle hike to learn more about the forest inhabitants and the plantlife. After the included lunch break, we will head to one of Khao Yai's beautiful waterfalls.
Afterwards, we will continue by safari driving to check the various saltlicks and foraging areas where potentially elephants or other animals may show up.
Where & When?
This trip departs from Pak Chong and can be booked all year-round. Pak Chong can be reached by public transport from Bangkok, but due to the fixed starting time, one is required to stay overnight in the area prior the tour. But returning by public transport right after the trip is possible. Our guide will drop you at the bus stop in that case.
We will inform you about possible pick up locations (not all hotels are within pick-up range).
Suggestion: Hello Hostel is a new budget hostel within walking distance from both the railway station and the bus/ minivan stops. We offer free pick up service from this location. Click here to book Hello Hostel.
If you are interested in a private transfer by taxi or minivan from e.g. Bangkok, just let us know!
You'll be accompanied by a guide and join in with other tourists. A minimum number of 4 participants is required before the tour can take off. In case the minimum is not reached we keep the right to cancel the tour. In such an unfortunate case, of course you will get the option to either get the deposit refunded, or we can decide on a bit higher rate based on the group size that allows continuation of the tour.
Unlike most other group tours on offer in the area, we have decided on a maximum group size of 6 people to keep the groups small enough to avoid spoiling the jungle adventure feeling.
Please confirm with us before booking a hotel in Khao Yai area as we don't offer pickup if your hotel is too far away. Or because some hotel owners don't like their guests to be picked up by tour operators.

Our Guide, Jay was fabulous. His knowledge about the jungle is elaborate, and he is extremely friendly and accommodating. I will recommend your site to friends and possibly come back to the jungle myself. Thank you so much for such an amazing trip!

The day trip is fun but tiring if you have kids in tow. The night safari can give it a miss, not worth the time even if it is free.

It’s a good adventure
Khao yai national park has a wonderful view.
But it’s sadly we weren’t meet the elephant.
We will support it to our friend
And the taxi driver is professional. 👍👍

I was very impressed by prompt communication. Every email or question was replyed immediately, even at the midnight. Therefore, the booking of the day tour was very efficient, very well done.
The tour was well organised. We were a little disappointed not to see that much animals, because of the rain season maybe. Otherwise, kids loved night safari. We enjoyed very much the nature of national park thanks to your guided tour.

A fantastic trip! We only had one day to explore the park and our guide was excellent at adapting the itinerary to suit us as well as a great guide to the animals of Khao Yai. I’ve been on wildlife tours all over the world and this was a very high quality tour! Thank you to our guide Beer!

Tata is a very good guide, he know what „farang“ looking for. It was a very good day trip with him. Even havy rain was not bad for our trip. He guide us in the forest, show us interesting animals and places. Even food was good. The night safary with the ranger, I never would do this again. They were not realy interested to show us somthing special. Maybe next time I wanna ask, if Tata can bring us to the bat Cave, think is more interesting than night safari with the rangers. I will come again with this company.
